Btw, I have a trailer hitch on, should I take that off for the trip or can I use that as a rear recovery?

If you do not have any other recovery point in the rear, then yes you can use it. You will need to buy something to go into the receiver. I have something like this.

If that's all you have for rear recovery, it's better than nothing.

I really want to go with you guys on this. I just ordered all the CB radio stuff, I'd been wanting to do one for a while, this gave me the necessary push! I have the BL and the MML scheduled for June hopefully, I'll probably have the $$$ by then. Now to play the waiting game! For the monstaliner and the CB stuff. Ugh! Waiting!

The way I see it, a Jeep is like sex-when it's good it's terrific, and when it's bad it's still pretty good!

Yes we plan to drop our stuff and then hit the trail.
IIRC, it's not too far past Bear Valley on the left hand side.

It works Ok, but the strap can slip off.

If you need help tuning the CB, I have an SWR meter.

i perfer the d-ring hitch. Less likely that the strap will come off, especially if you have to get yanked. You can also use the d-ring on other parts of your rig (if you have bumpers with d-ring mounts). You can also use a d-ring to connect two straps if needed.

if you have any questions about tow hooks, ask Bob.
